Man you just took me on a trip down memory lane. I bought one of these in August of 1988 because I also had a 1979 Interceptor 340. And not to mention, because no one in my area had one. It was a one of a kind sled. It was a real screamer, not many of the new machines then could touch it. About two weeks later when I got back home I found out my buddy bought the same thing from the brother-in-law of the guy I bought mine from. lol. Man was I mad. Anyway thanks for the memories.
By the way you wouldn't happen to know the weight of the 550 would you?
I believe it was around 400 pounds. Yeah, their fun sleds. I remember growing up around here there was one guy that had a 1979 Invader 440 that was the fastest sled around. I thought that thing had the best looks of anything out there. I mean they looked fast just sitting still. I'll probably miss it, but then I'll have to go buy another one.

I said that for years too . The Invaders were a real hot looking sled but then they brought out the Interceptor and when I first saw it I was floored. When I first got my Invader 340 in 1984 a friend got a brand new Polaris Sport 440 and the two ran neck and neck. He couldn't get away from me and I couldn't get away from him. lol. Hey you wouldn't happen to have any good pics you could email me do you? I'd like to show my 9 yr old, he'd get a big kick out of seeing what dad used to run. Thanks again.
